Last week I came across a job announcement for a pathology transcriptionist, a temporary job taking place in the city where I live.  I'm currently retired, but I wouldn't mind taking a temporary job that's relatively close to home. 

The morning after I sent in my resume I got a call from the staffing company.  The person I talked to was quite impressed with my 25 years' experience in medical transcription.  Unfortunately, I've never worked pathology, but I do have a wide background and know I can pick it up fast. 

So far, though, since the first call I have heard nothing.   I'm just hoping I'll hear something, even if it's that they went with someone else.

I think, even if they went/go with someone else, they're going to want to hold onto your resume.

I had to transcribe quite briefly (a few months) for a private practice and absolutely hated it (it's been a relief reading your posts all this time about how long it takes to do medical transcription; while I still know I'm not any good at it, I'm not as bad at it as I previously thought).

Industry networking event tomorrow, hopefully I'll shake some of the right hands... Wish me extrovertedness!
All will be well, and all manner of things will be well.
